Archival corrugated board

Description

An acid- and lignin-free buffered cardboard most often sold in light blue or gray colors, but also available in tan and white. Archival corrugated board is typically buffered with 3% calcium carbonate that provides a pH of 7.5-9.5. A water resistant, modified starch adhesive is used for corrugating. Fluting size is designated by a letter (A-F) that refers to the number of folds per foot.

Working Properties

Like all corrugated products, blueboard is stronger in one direction. This can be mitigated by cross-lamination sheets (PACCIN).

Forms/Sizes

Available in pre-cut sheets is sizes ranging from 8” x 10” up to 55” x 120”. Larger sizes (40" x 60" and up) requires trucking. Thicknesses range from: single-wall E-flute 1/16”, single-wall B-flute 1/8”, double-wall BB-flute ¼”.
